Like many of you, I often get asked the question "where are the 'real' drums?" I was doing a recording session last week and I asked the engineer how it sounded. He said "sounds fine. Sounds like fake drums". This hacked me off.
The next day I was kicking around ideas and I think I finally have a litany to respond with.
"This is real. It's real clean-sounding, it's real convenient, it's real fun to play, and it's a real asset to a professional envirnoment".
Snark may be added where appropriate. I thank you.
